Bright and quirky Victorian apartment in East London

We’re looking for short- or long-term subletters for our recently purchased 1 bedroom apartment on the edge of Epping Forest in East London.

Converted out of an ex-Victorian Schoolhouse, the apartment has high ceilings, beautiful large windows and other period features. The place feels very bright and quirky - the floor plan is somewhat labyrinthine and comes with access to a large private roof terrace, the sun- and moon-light stream in and we have eclectic, mainly second-hand furnishing gathered from different cities around the world with lots of colour, lamps and plants. The indoor photos were taken during dusk on a stormy winter day so you can see how much light there is!

The location is extraordinarily peaceful and green yet just a 15-minute walk (through parks) or 5 minute bus-ride to underground/overground stations as well as Forest Gate shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. It also comes with loads of free car-parking directly in front of the building.

Both the apartment and the location are wonderful for inspired writing and other forms of creating.
